‘What Candidates Can Christians Support’ — The Wrong Question for Pete Buttigieg (Opinion)

‘Do you think that it’s impossible to be a Christian and support Trump?’

Published

On February 19, 2020, Fox News played a clip of candidate Pete Buttigieg on a televised town hall meeting, being asked a question, that he is least qualified to answer.

Erin Burnett, a CNN anchor popped this question to Mayor Pete.

“Do you think that it’s impossible to be a Christian and support Trump?”

The question is borderline absurdity, but it is Buttigieg’s answer that is the quintessential example and the very essence of theological error.

Pete said, “I’m not going to tell other Christians how to be Christian, but I will say I cannot find any compatibility between the way this President conducts himself and anything I find in Scripture.”

If Scripture is the criteria by which to judge Donald Trump’s qualifications to be President and our answer to the legitimacy of supporting him – Pete is on thin ice.

The first theology error is to assume that because we live in America or because we attend a church, we are a Christian. According to the scripture a person must be first repent or desist from their sinful life and then be born again by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Secondly, they must endeavor to obey every part of the scripture and especially the commands of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” (Mt 7:21)

By his own public confession Donald Trump admits that many things in his old life were wrong, but he now is on a new path. As it pertains to Pete Buttigieg, we haven’t any such proclamation, but rather he flaunts his sinful life as if it were perfectly scriptural – it is not.

In fact, both homosexuality and gay “marriage” are considered a scriptural abomination that is a direct affront to God.

Is Mayor Pete planning a full repentance anytime soon?

The answer here is perfectly understood and in the interim Pete Buttigieg remains the perfect example of American cultural decline and neo-theological confusion.

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” (Ro 1: 26-28)

After an honest perusal of this passage it would seem that the choice between Mayor Pete and incumbent Donald Trump comes down to a choice between a republican or a reprobate.

Someone in the Buttigieg campaign should take time to warn Mayor Pete, that using the scriptures against Trump or any other candidate is a risky proposition.

But if Pete insists on using the scripture, let him start here.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” (Mt 7:3)

Donald Trump Is Already ‘Planning for the Next Administration’ — VIDEO

2024 will be here before you know it…

If Donald Trump again runs for president in 2024 AND if he becomes the Republican Party nominee, you’d have to imagine there’s little chance he would “lose” an election twice in a row. If Trump becomes president on January 20, 2025, who comes with him as a member of his cabinet? Pompeo, most likely. Carson would be probable. But you’d have to think Haley, Pence, and a few other big names from the first term wouldn’t even get a phone call. Appearing on Hannity on Friday night, Mark Meadows, former Congressman and chief of staff, dropped a bomb. Meadows said, “What we will see on Sunday is we will see the start of planning for the next administration. And I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaSCFIcgR7M&feature=emb_title And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1365477701767823361 https://twitter.com/trscoop/status/1365479675506659332 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1365486571978301442 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1365496943225556994

Trump to Start New Political Action Committee — Corey Lewandowski to Head It Up

He’s still top dog!

The world has long been waiting to see what’s next for Donald Trump. The former President has been largely laying low down at Mar-a-Lago these past few weeks, with only a few quick statements having been disseminated by those around him. His Twitter account remains suspended, which could be one reason for the lack of controversy he’s spawned these days. Now, with a major CPAC speech leering imminently over the horizon, The Don is making some moves. From Fox News: Former President Trump is starting up a new political action committee and is eyeing longtime top political adviser and aide Corey Lewandowski to head up the new super PAC, multiple people with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Fox News. The move was decided during a meeting late last week at Trump’s south Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago when the former president gathered with his political team. The group included 2020 campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. CONTINUED: Sources familiar with the meeting shared that a number of Trump’s post-presidency political activities were discussed and added that plans to start up the PAC were not finalized. “MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.” The move will likely solidify Trump’s influence over the Republican Party – something that moderates and Democrats alike still fear.
